When they can say each and everything without any fear that the other will be offended or hurt. Then it is a kind of arrangement, which can be broken by anything. He loved you so much that he could not resist the temptation to create you.
Remember, being cannot happen conveniently, otherwise everybody would have being without any problem. Being happens only when you take risks, when you move in danger. It does not happen—it cannot happen because God creates you out of his richness. How can God create a poor man? You are his overflowing; you are part of existence.
How can you be poor? You are rich, infinitely rich—as rich as nature itself. That is an absolute truth, there are no exceptions to it. You can love others only if you are able to love yourself. It does not cling to the tree. We are married! And before you can leave me you will need a divorce—at least a separation!

Intimacy : trusting oneself and the other
But at the same time, there arises an undercurrent of feeling that something is missing-a quality of intimacy. This quality has very little to do with the physical, though sex is certainly one possible door. Far more important is a willingness to expose our deepest feelings and vulnerabilities, with the trust that the other person will treat them with care. Ultimately, the willingness to take the risk of intimacy has to be grounded in an inner strength that knows that even if the other remains closed, even if that trust is betrayed, we will not suffer any permanent damage. In this gentle and compassionate guide, Osho takes his readers step-by-step through what makes people afraid of intimacy, how to encounter those fears and go beyond them, and what they can do to nourish themselves and their relationships to support more openness and trust. OSHO challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to life in all its richness. More than a decade after his death in , the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.
